There is a hierarchy of sustainable travel. The further up the hierarchy, the greener and more sustainable the mode of travel. The hierarchy is:

  1. Digital communication
  2. Walking
  3. Cycling
  4. Public and shared transport
  5. Electric vehicles and car sharing
  6. Internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles and car sharing
  7. Air
